Mamatha Makkala Mandira (MMM) was established to reach to the unreached through participatory learning and action, and a strategy for sustainable living. They work in both, urban and rural areas, implementing various government and non-government sponsored projects on health, sanitation, women empowerment, skills upgradation, income generation activities, sustainable agriculture, and social forestry.

Their activities include:

  • Self-Help Groups (SHGs) Formation: To address the issue of gender inequality and to provide sustainable livelihood options to people falling below the poverty line, MMM encourages formation of women Self-Help Groups (SHGs). They provide vocational training to women and adolescent girls in various skills and income generation activities like tailoring & stitching, sheep rearing, horticulture, handicrafts, etc. They also helps to establish credit linkages with banks, train them on how to market their products, encourage savings, and create awareness about various government schemes. The programme was started in five villages and three groups consisting of 48 members and has now expanded to more than 1,000 groups with a total of 11,879 women in 84 villages.
  • Health: MMM conducts health camps in the targeted areas to create awareness on HIV/AIDS. Community based health care in the remote and unserved areas is targeted through primary curative services, appropriate referral system, preventive and promotive care through culturally adopted IEC/health education, school health programmes, formation of village health committees, and popularizing traditional health practices. The villagers are encouraged to plant medicinal plants.
  • Environment Awareness: MMM encourages farmers to resort to organic farming and hence use less pesticides/insecticides on the produce, creates awareness among the people to control afforestation and preserve the environment.
  • Legal & Consumer Awareness: MMM has initiated a set of activities for promoting legal aid, legal education, family counseling services to targeted families, and for improving the living conditions of children by fighting against child harassment, abuse, and labour. They made consumers aware about their rights to be protected, be informed, be heard, seek redressal, and complete consumer education.
  • Child Development: This includes rehabilitation of street children through setting up of Day Care Centres and Crèches.
